Yeah the mistake he made was assuming that everyone on the Grateful Dead forum at the archive is here because they love the Grateful Dead's music. People are here for all kinds of reasons, and to even attempt to glean the motivations of some of the bizarre individuals lurking about would be an exercise in futility. I agree with his sentiment, it's been repeated over and over again by wide eyed innocent folks over the years though many are too stubborn or self righteous see it. Or ultimately they just don't give a shit what others think.

Oh I do like the music. Some of it anyway. Some of the time. I just don't share the pseudo-religious fervour that some bring to the table, either for the whole concept of the Grateful Dead or for some fraction of it (Jerry, Phil, Brent, 60s, 70s, 80s, etc. etc.) As you say, we're all here for different, in some cases unfathomable, reasons. Although it might have been the music that brought most of us here it's not necessarily the music that makes us all stay. Speaking for myself, part of the reason I drop by is that I enjoy exchanges like this.

Last day to stream for free from NPR here in the states. Their best since, and in some ways a bookend to, New Adventures in Hi-Fi. Having Patti Smith always helps (and Mr Eddie Vedder is buried in there as well)
